Kim is down to earth and very professional. She is stealthy - didn't notice her climbing everywhere to get that perfect photo! She made us feel comfortable and at ease. She's hands on and will assist with anything. Don't know how to put a boutonniere on your brother or bussle your dress? Don't worry, she's got you covered! She knew all the best places to take photos at Emerald Lake and the Natural Bridge. She had recommendations for other vendors that would work with what we wanted (cake, flowers). Very flexible in her packages. We received a few teaser pictures the next day to share with friends, family (or social media) and they are amazing. Can't get over how amazing she is at what she does!Sent on 01/06/2019

Professional and Helpful
Kim didn't get to shoot our wedding, due to circumstances out of her control (from our end, not hers), but I have to recommend her anyways! She was so helpful and prompt in her correspondence and came up with many different ideas and solutions that would work for us. Kim works hard at understanding what makes a client feel comfortable. I would have loved to work with her further. Thank you, Kim!Sent on 02/09/2019

Talented photographer and professional service from start to finish
My fiancée and I are from the UK. We are so happy that we chose Kim Payant to photograph our elopement-style, destination wedding in the Rockies.
All aspects of the wedding were researched thoroughly and when it came to finding a photographer, Kim's portfolio stood out for us immediately.
We were looking for a photographer that could not only take the formal, posed shots, but also capture the fun and spontaneous moments. We're probably not the most natural models so we needed someone that could give us some direction when needed! Kim did all of this in such a well-organised, professional and fun way that it made the whole experience wonderful.
Kim has an outstanding eye for detail. She was incredibly flexible and helpful - we honestly can't thank her enough for helping make our day very special, and for capturing every moment of it with such incredibly beautiful images.
We highly recommend Kim for any couple that's planning a wedding, where they need a talented, creative and professional photographer that will work with them to ensure a first-class experience from start to finish.Sent on 14/04/2020

Thanks again and I wish you all the best!

Kim is amazing! Very professional
We are so grateful for everything Kim did for us not only on our wedding day but also the lead up to it. We are from Australia and got married in Banff. We had many questions that Kim was more than happy to help answer, not just relating to the photos! We had planned on an outside wedding (in January), however it was minus 26 degrees Celsius! Kim was brilliant in helping us get our room "photo" ready for the ceremony as we changed the location to our room (Buffalo Mountain Lodge). We had a 2 hour photo package with Kim, however she was so professional that she arrived early to help with planning/set up and due to the freezing conditions drove us to each photo location and kept the car running for us to jump back into to thaw out between shots!! She really went way above and beyond what we expected. The quality of the photos are exceptional. Highly recommend Kim if you are looking who to take your photos..Sent on 12/02/2020
